Ginger + Poppy – Dubai
Our beautiful Bo & Luca gowns can be experienced in the beautiful loft-style boutique Ginger + Poppy in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. We spoke to Ginger + Poppy’s owner, May, about how she started, her take on the latest wedding trends and what she loves most about Bo & Luca.
HOW DID YOU FIND YOURSELF IN THE BRIDAL INDUSTRY?
After trying to find my dress for my own wedding I realized that there were so many amazing, modern and unique bridal wear designers not available in this region who are pushing the boundaries of bridal fashion. After lots of research and exploration, I found that it is really something that I would love to offer to brides here, and so that was the start of our journey.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR BOUTIQUE?
Ginger + Poppy Bridal is a relaxed and intimate space where brides can feel at ease when searching for their dream dress with their favourite people. We want brides to feel like themselves on their wedding day so we have carefully picked designers who we believe offer this through distinctly individual designs that elevate their personalities and compliment the unique style of each person.
LESS OR MORE?
Definitely less, because you can always add more!
WHAT’S THE BIGGEST BRIDAL TREND OF THE SEASON?
Statement earrings will always have my heart. It’s such an easy accessory to wear yet gives such a big impact on your final look.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FUTURE GOALS?
I think opening the boutique has been such a big milestone already that I’m happy to let this moment keep growing and building naturally into long-lasting relationships with brides and brands. I want to ensure that we are staying true to why we opened in the first place.
WHO WOULD BE YOUR DREAM BRIDE TO DRESS?
Any of my closest girlfriends are my dream brides! They are so different from each other yet are exactly the reason why I opened Ginger + Poppy. They are the strong, kind and sassy women who I would love to dress for their big days.
WHAT IS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’D LEAVE WITH BRIDES IN SEARCH OF THEIR PERFECT WEDDING GOWN?
Make sure you feel totally yourself when you are wearing it and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
OF ALL THE BRANDS AND DESIGNERS, WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE BO & LUCA?
Bo & Luca encompasses everything I love about bridalwear. They are pushing bridal fashion boundaries yet they’re timeless. The fabrics are all luxurious and of the highest quality. The intricate hand-beading is utterly stunning and all of the gowns have an undeniable uniqueness. You will always feel so special wearing a Bo & Luca gown.
